Care pathways

On this page you can download a copy of our epilepsy care pathway documents to read at your leisure. Care pathways demonstrate how patients are diagnosed and treated according to their condition and how it is affecting them.

These pathways have been put together by members of the local epilepsy interest group. Each one covers a different service area, but as a whole they are aimed to ensure a seamless service through all local agencies.

The pathways are intended to indicate the principals of good practice in order to ensure that children and young people are identified and diagnosed quickly and correctly.
